How would it be like if…

Posted in Personal, Story with tags , , , , , on October 29, 2008 by engrlouraine

This weekend we will be spending All Saints Day and All Souls Day at my hometown in Mati City, Davao Oriental that’s about four hours with a bus from Davao City.

Hmmm missing my mother–hood ahihihih. No kidding aside, we will be visiting our mother’s grave since me and my brother are based here in Davao City. We lost her due to Cervical Cancer that was January 26, 2000. But still, she visits us, through our dreams! hehhehe thought of something else? I miss mama Nida! hayyyy. How would it be like if my mother is still around? I missed those times and envy others who gets to hug, kiss and enjoy their moms. But anyway, life gets no stops and pause. Live life and learn to treasure people.

Another thing, we will be visiting our lola’s place too and other relatives. In a year, we go home once or twice a year. Its hard to go home for several reasons. I’m sad about that, but looking forward to visiting them again.

And also, I am expecting pinches from my aunts and uncles whom I think misses me for my wackoness and childishness. ahhhhh..

Happy vacation! mwah


New Office – made of Carton Boxes!

I was checking on my emails when these photos caught my attention. I was giggling at my seat and thought of sharing them to you.

How would you react if you are to work on an office space that looks like these?

plus these:


Dress Code:
1) You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.
2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.
3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.
4) If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Sick Days:
We will no longer accept a doctor’s statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days:
Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturdays & Sundays.

Bereavement Leave:
This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend the funeral arrangements in your place. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

Bathroom Breaks:
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin boa rd under the ‘Chronic Offenders’category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company’s mental health policy.

Lunch Break: (Love this one)
* Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy.
* Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure.
* Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that’s all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.

Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints,
frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

The Management

To those unemployed goodluck and happy haunting! mwahhh

Blogger’s Fellowship Night

Last night, Davao bloggers meet up at Pantawan Hall, PAGCOR, Grand Regal Hotel in Lanang.

After office we, melowdee, badz and I side tripped to San Pedro Street for badz’s errands. Then rode on a jeepney to get to Lanang. I was murmuring that we were too early for the event but I did not expect that there would be that much crowd and program ready to start as we arrived! We were not early as I thought. Kuya doods way ahead of us at the venue approached us and helped ourselves find seats. We had enough time to eat out dinner-buffet style before Ms. Janet Toral formally started the program.

The Manager of PAGCOR courteously welcomed us at their place. As bloggers introduced themselves one by one and us giggling and constructing humorous tags and end up skipped because there has no enough time left! hahahha *sigh* sayang!

Slideshows and film showing presented and formal recognition and announcement of the davao bloggers who made their way to the top 100 sites for hot lists!

We enjoyed the night, Thank you for sponsoring PAGCOR thru digital filipino club.
